The win was Van Kooten's second straight Spring Series victory this year. Only two weeks remain for the 60th Men’s Little 500, and one day less for the Women’s Little 500.

From first in ITTs to first in Miss ‘N Out, Van Kooten crossed the finish line her back straight, not with her bike but with the Teter fans cheering in the background. Van Kooten made it through three heats to compete in the final race.

Rounding the final turn, Sharp led the way in front of BKB’s Stephen Quay and Phi Delta Theta teammate Baxter Burnworth.
